Subject: Folk singer Julie Felix dies aged 81

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/24/20 at 4:54 am

The American-born folk singer Julie Felix has died at the age of 81 after a short illness, according to her agent. The musician, who moved to the UK from California in 1964, rose to fame as the resident singer on Sir David Frost’s show The Frost Report and also hosted her own programme on the BBC titled Once More With Felix. The show featured Leonard Cohen, Spike Milligan, Dusty Springfield, The Kinks and The Bee Gees. Her agent Fran Collier said in a statement: “It is with great sadness that we announce that folk legend Julie Felix died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday evening March 22 after a short illness. She was also one of the artists to perform at the first Isle Of Wight Festival and returned to perform there in subsequent years. She was still performing at venues across the country up until her death.

She had two UK Singles Chart hits in 1970, the first of several on the RAK label, produced by Mickie Most. The first was with the song entitled "If I Could (El Cóndor Pasa)", while the second, marginally less successful, "Heaven is Here", was written by Errol Brown and Tony Wilson of Hot Chocolate. 1990 saw the release of a new album, Bright Shadow.
